Microsoft Kinect gets UK price, 4GB Xbox announced
Microsoft Kinect, the motion-sensing peripheral for the Xbox 360 has been given a UK price. And the news comes in conjunction with an announcement of a new 4GB Xbox 360 – all of which shapes up to a very tasty console.
If you want a standalone Kinect sensor with the Kinect Adventures gaming title to accompany your existing console, you’ll have to shell out £129.99.
But if you’re in the market for a new console, the 4GB Xbox 360 that comes toting Wi-Fi, plus Kinect and the game will set you back £249.99. And if you’re just after the new console, that’s going to cost you £149.99.
Microsoft claims that there will be “more than 15 games are set to be available at launch” for Kinect, including Kinectimals, Kinect Sports and Kinect Joy Ride. Each of those Kinect games will sell for £39.99.
There’s still no exact date for Kinect’s release in the UK, but the new 4GB 360 console will land in the UK on 20 August as a standalone device.
